This album is inspired from representations of paradises in various cultures, both Occidental and Oriental. It tends to explore a certain feeling of joy and fulfillment that persists as an intuition within each person, for every moment of one's life, and probably can never be lost.
The music is entirely based on manipulations of waveforms. It consists of complex 3D sonic spatial structures, floating thru a plasmic pool of waves and currents of colorful sound particles. Although this music doesn't use traditional melody and harmony, tonality and rhythm, while stepping into the realm of experimental expression, it has the same form of development as in traditional music, and is based on the proportion of the Golden Section, with an initial Tonic balance, a development thru a disbalance, and a culmination that leads to a new Tonic equilibrium.
Track Pure Land is inspired from a Sanskrit text related to Pure Land
Buddhism which describes a celestial paradise named Sukhavati. In this paradise everything is made of precious stones and metals in thousands of colors, gold, silver, beryl, crystal, coral, red pearl and emerald. There is the sound of birds singing, Indian bells, the sound of river water flowing. On rivers with borders of golden sand float countless flower petals in thousands of perfumes. Everyone who arrives in this place instantly becomes illuminated. This track focuses on bliss and soft ethereal environments.
A silver-green precious stone highly valued in Ancient China.
TREE OF LIFE
Track Tree Of Life combines the images of Asvattha - the Tree of
Transmigration from Bhagavad Gita, the Tree of Life from the Apocalypse, and the shamanic concept of the axis of the world. It explores the continuity, the common element, the essence of life that overcomes chaos.
An azure-blue precious stone.
Track Sirius offers the image of a jungle from an alien world. A place
beyond time and space. Its emphasis is on the expression of atemporality in time.
A black semitransparent precious volcanic stone. Widely used by the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranian region and the pre-Columbian American cultures.
Track Eden is a 10 minutes piece that reserves a metamorphosis, a
transformation, a transmutation into a perfect form when you become as liquid silver and gold, and a final purification - thru a fully artificial sound of a crystalline falling rain that represents fulfillment and ending.
